No one should live one missed appointment away from a prison sentence.

Tell your legislators to end crimeless revocation in Wisconsin

Crimeless revocation is a misguided, expensive, and cruel policy that needlessly disrupts the lives of thousands while not making Wisconsin any safer.

We need a community supervision system that genuinely benefits returning citizens and offers them the services and opportunities they need to get back on their feet. People should not have to live under the constant threat of imprisonment for violating a purely technical rule that poses no risk to public safety. We should be using our resources in ways that strengthen communities, improve people’s material conditions and reverse cycles of recidivism. Instead, our state has opted for a policy of crimeless revocation, which has supercharged Wisconsin’s mass incarceration crisis and trapped individuals in a revolving door of criminalization and punishment.

We deserve responses to harm that produce justice and safety for all. Still, we can't get there by embracing the law and order era tactics that have made our criminal legal system into the dysfunctional, racist and costly failure it is today.

Add your name to our petition and join us in calling on politicians across the spectrum to end crimeless revocation in Wisconsin.
